The instructions in the tutorial ask you to enable SSL support in Swift, which is the major change to your installation.

You can safely do this without losing any data on your SAIO install, however anything that needs to connect to it (such as the glance OpenStack Image Catalog and Delivery service), should also be configured to use SSL.

The rest of the tutorial is merely uploading and downloading using clients of swift

To create another Object Storage server on the same server, I would suggest creating it in a new virtual machine to avoid confusion.

Can you help with this problem?
